I’ve been lurking on T-Nation on and off for a few years and I think this is my first post. After a 12-18month hiatus from the gym I decided to try to put on a few LBs and make some progress toward being ‘strong’. I think that my natural build is athletic but on the thin side.
DL and Sq: 2x BW
Bench: 1.5x BW
Maintain mountain and road bike fitness
No weight room stats as of now. I am focusing on my form in the DL and BoxSq so I can learn some of the other big moves (Squat, OHS, Snatch, etc.) My flexibility and hip mobility are pretty bad and I definitely have an anterior pelvic tilt. I do hip mobility warmups and have added glute isolation drills at the start of each workout. After a month of some conditioning and another few weeks working out a program I’m doing a 2day push/pull split with 5x5 on DL, Bench, Shoulder Press, and BentRows (BoxSq on push day but not 5x5)
Just saying hello (officially)
